Thanks for all your good wishes for Sam and his interview, he said it went really well, he will not know anything tilL next Wednesday...the waiting is horrid...
The good news here is the fog has lifted , it has hung over the Wirral for 3 days. I have made lots of cards but couldn't photograph them until the weather brightened up, light makes such a difference.
I'm just loving the new cd from Joanna Sheen "Holly Pond Hill". I have used it on the dresser card (this image alone made me want to buy it), and the pretty pink baby card.

The backing papers are beautiful too. I can highly recommend it....sorry about tempting you Pinky but it's a must have.

Mice Day card :
stamp penny black called mice day, papers first edition bird song ,dies and sentiments di namics.

challenges entered :

fairy tales : animals/pets

I love vintage looking cards,not sure I can always pull them off though, but I'm quite pleased with this one.
The lovely Bo Bunny 12x12 papers called little miss made it easy. I used a kanban clear stamp , love this rose set very cheep and stamps beautifully. I've coloured with promarkers , distressed with Tim Holtz brushed corduroy and added a few dabs of mod podge to look like dew drops. I've stuck some pretty gold lacy ribbon, from a local craft shop , down 2 sides, added some gold peeloff corners ,a few pearl gems and a gold embellishment from a set from hobby craft called nostalgic treasures.

Bloomin 'eck Jane - can't believe how many cards you've made - and gorgeous ones at that. I haven't seen anything about the new JS cd but I see what you mean about it being worth it for the dresser alone - it's fab.
Hope hubby's painful back doesn't spoil the weekend for you both.

Blogger is really having fun and games this morning Jane and I can only see part of some of your photos.

I can see some mice in there and I can see a gorgeous vintage piece, I'm not sure if I've seen you do vintage before but it looks like you do it very well.

Thanks so much sharing with us at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping and Pretty Little Ribbons challenges this month.
